Jack of all trades, master of none? Not anymore!

Whoever came up with that adage would have to rethink it now because almost everyone, especially in the spotlight, wears multiple hats these days.

This is especially true for the entertainment industry because creative people usually have skills that spill over. Actors can sing and singers can act. They’re both performance driven. And performers also branch out to businesses ventures and various other professional adventures.

Here are 5 already famous hidden gems who surprised us with their acting potential…

Atif Aslam

The singer had already made his acting debut with Shoaib Mansoor’s hit film Bol (2011) opposite Mahira Khan. However, it wasn’t until Sang e Mah that the fans and critics recognized him as an actor.

Sang e Mah marks Atif Aslam’s fformal acting debut. Exceeding all expectations, Atif as Hilmand makes his presence felt and proves that he’s a true performer.

Ace designer Hassan Sheheryar Yasin aka HSY is known for his command over the world of fashion and glamour, but who knew he could also act? The couture king ventured into acting and won us over in his debut as Akram in Pehli Si Muhabbat. 

The character was polar opposite to HSY’s real personality, yet he gave an extremely convincing performance.  Soon, he will make his big screen debut in Ishrat Made in China.
